Martha Redbone to play in Juneau Sept. 30

The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council will kick off a new season of concerts and performances with Brooklyn-based musician Martha Redbone, who will perform at the Juneau Douglas High School on Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m.

Redbone is an Independent Music Award-winning musician of Cherokee, Choctaw, Shawnee and African-American descent. Her show will be based on songs from her current album “The Garden Of Love.” The album includes influences from Redbone’s southeastern upbringing, as well as elements of folk, country gospel, stomp chants, old-time string band and other genres.

The New Yorker wrote of the album: “In a brilliant collision of cultures, the powerful blues and soul singer Martha Redbone has recorded an album called ‘The Garden of Love: Songs of William Blake,’ which was produced by John McEuen, of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. In it, the mystical, humanistic words of the eighteenth-century English poet are fused with the melodies, drones, and rhythms of the Appalachian string-band music that Redbone absorbed as a child from her grandparents, in Black Mountain, Kentucky.”

Tickets are on sale now at The Juneau Arts & Culture Center, Hearthside Books, and at www.jahc.org.  Tickets range from $5 for UAS students and children, to $35 for adults. Student and senior pricing is available as well. JAHC passes are available at $80 for any four Season 42 concert tickets (general seating), a special offer the JAHC now provides to the public.
